Oh Constance… here comes my favourite ever personal ‘digging story’. Several years ago I kept coming back to a deep house mix, a certain part and track in it to be precise. I couldn’t get it out of my head and spent many, many hours trying to find it. I wanted it badly. Shazam was no help ofcourse and even though I knew from the drums that It would probably be something from the early to mid 90s i couldn’t find it for the life of me. After 2-3 years of looking I more or less gave up.Then came a certain afternoon digital digging on Discogs. You know those days where you sit in front your laptop/computer for hours and hours going through labels, artists, aliases of said artists trying to find something old and overlooked but not finding anything? That was such a day. I even went trough some artists back catalog that must have probably gone through 3 times already. Well I went through Nail’s gain and noticed a video had been uploaded to the release page of a record that never had a video before, the ‘Constance’ EP. The video was uploaded by none other than the man himself. When I pressed play I suddenly recognised the track and realising it had been the track I had been looking for for so many years literally made me jump from chair.Now here it comes.. Looking at the release page again made me realise I recognised the label artwork from somewhere. Then I remembered that a year or so ago Phonica sold some new old stock copies of a Nail record “found in Neil aka Nail's own loft” and that I had bought a copy. Then i realised that the very record I had been looking for for years was sitting in my record shelf! A mint unplayed copy no less!I had never bothered to properly check the record I bought as I had just quickly purchased it for fear of missing out. Rarely if ever have i felt the way I did about a certain track or record than the day I first put the needle on that record. I couldn't stop laughing and playing it through over and over, just lifting the needle back to the beginning and playing it again.Oh Constance.. I may name my daughter after you. Thank you Neil for this wonderful piece of music.
biutiful, thanks for sharing. hope your daughter is good. hugs
What a beautiful story! Wonderful words that motivate to go on. Tx.
No thank you Neil, you made my day many times with your music :) And i am absolutely sure this applies to other people as well!
Thank you very much for this, it’s made my day. :) Nx
"Constance" was always a fave of mine among Nail's more 'tender' output, with a beautiful pad work and some reversed voice snippets bringing strange otherwordly poetry. One of his finest accomplishments in balancing groove and emotion.
